Concert Review: 2NE1 unleash their girl power onstage

Published on Jun 29, 2014 1:27 PM

Hyped after attending a high octane concert by K-pop girl group 2NE1, my female friend remarked: "These girls make me feel good about myself."

The sassy lasses pride themselves as being fierce, independent women, the antithesis of typical K-pop girl groups, who often pander to male fans by acting cute or turning up their sex appeal.

2NE1 have even earned themselves the nicknames of "scary unnis" (unnis means older sister in Korean) in their home country.

That girl power was reflected in their energetic two-hour performance at their sophomore full-length concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday, two years (2012) after their first world tour stop at the same venue.
